Designed to function like natural teeth, removable dentures are a dental treatment that consist of a gum-colored base that fits over the alveolar bone ridge that once held a patient’s teeth. While dentures enable individuals to speak and eat normally, they serve other important functions. For instance, dentures provide stability for a patient’s bite, as well as support the facial skeleton, adding contour to lips and cheeks. This results in a more confident, youthful appearance. Thus, as a tried and true solution for tooth loss, removable dentures remain at the forefront of restorative dentistry.

As an expert denture dentist serving the Powers Ferry area of Marietta, Dr. Leia Porcaro at Grateful Dental is among a select group of dentists with extensive training in replacing missing teeth using a variety of leading-edge dentures for patients of all ages.

Natural Dentures

Advancements in denture dentistry has awarded dentists the ability to customize dentures based on age, desired tooth shade, natural tissue contours of the face, and even masculine and feminine features. Natural dentures are a vinyl-based denture solution that are stain-resistant and shaped for better stability—long term. Your unique smile characteristics are considered, with special attention to soft tissues and lip support. Patients find that Natural Dentures are incredibly lifelike, comfortable, and easy to clean.

Flexible Partials

Flexible partials represent a leading-edge removable partial denture, or thermoplastic appliance. Containing no metal clasps or wires, flexible partials adjust beautifully to the distinct contours of a patient’s mouth and dentition. Easy to adjust, these partials are thin and transparent, essentially vanishing in the mouth. Flexible Partials are resistant to water absorption, stain resistant, and do not hold odor.

Simply Natural Partials
